      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      BB:
      $1.79
      UTG2:
      $2.96
      MP1:

      CO (Hero):
      $2.19
      BU:
      $2.02
      SB:
      $2.00


      Preflop: Hero is CO with 9, 8.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BU calls $0.08, SB folds, BB calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.25) 9, 4, 5 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.18, BU calls $0.18, BB calls $0.18.

      Turn: ($0.79) 4 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.36, BU calls $0.36, BB folds.

      River: ($1.51) 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU bets $0.90, Hero folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.
      QUESTION: BU's slick turn call signalled a stronger hand than mine, so here I check/folded. However, is it worth betting here? Wasn't my play too weak?

      Final Pot: $1.51.

      Hello dember,

      You ain't gonna get called from a lot worse hands there anyways, and not that many hands missed. Most of the hands have some showdown value by Checking and therefore I'd also Check/Fold the river.

      Best Regards.
